Languages with explicit scoping encourage you to repeat yourself. When the talk falls on significant whitespace, the most common reaction I hear seems to be one of nervous apotropaic deflection. "Indentation matters? Oh, no! I'm horrified." I've always wondered why people react like that. What's the problem with significant whitespace?
